Holts Summit, Mo –In 2019, PFSbrands committed to supporting two non-profits by offering payroll deductions and hosting fundraising raffles – and its employee-owners followed through. Throughout the year, a combined $24,000 of employee-owners’ own money was donated to the Super Sam Foundation and the St. Clair Butterfly Foundation.
The Super Sam Foundation, located in Fulton, MO, is a pediatric cancer foundation with a mission focused on raising awareness, funding research, and supporting families in the fight against childhood cancer. Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institutes’ funding is given to pediatric cancers. The money donated goes toward not only cancer research in the area of soft tissue sarcoma, but also in providing Comfort Packs for children fighting cancer – as well as Sibling Packs and Caregiver Packs.
“This generous gift from 2019 is the largest single gift our Foundation has ever received,” states Cassie Santhuff, President and Co-Founder of the Super Sam Foundation. “The Employee Owners at PFSbrands have been sharing their time and talents to support the day to day needs of our mission for years, and to have this incredible financial support too, blows me away. In 2020, we will be funding $100,000 in research, while also expanding our reach to include additional advocacy work, expanded comfort support, and new awareness campaigns. PFSbrands' and their employee-owners understand us and our mission in a very personal way. We are beyond grateful to have their support.”
